Google Warns of New Chrome Zero-Day Attack


Google on Friday joined the list of vendors dealing with zero-day attacks, rolling out a major Chrome Desktop update to fix a security defect that’s already been exploited in the wild.

The high-severity vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2023-2033, is described as a type confusion in the Chrome V8 JavaScript engine.

“Google is aware that an exploit for CVE-2023-2033 exists in the wild,” the company said in a barebones advisory that credits Clément Lecigne of Google’s Threat Analysis Group for reporting the issue.
